Up until today, there wasn’t much news to report.  No big new snowfall, but consistent little amounts that kept adding to our total.  Trails were gradually getting better and better, the big grooming machines were able to get out on both sides, and generally people were pretty happy about the skiing conditions.

Today we’re getting the same strange weather that the whole state is experiencing. We heard it was raining hard on the North Shore this morning.  We’re getting….well, it’s just kind of weird. Peculiar moisture usually eventually turns into snow in our location, so that’s our hope.  We’ll keep you posted, or call either of the resorts for updates.

About Bearskin

Once upon a time Sue McCloughan was a K-6 media/technology specialist, worrying about bar codes, book budgets and barfing 1st graders. On July 20th, 2007, Sue, Bob, Kaitlin and Quinn McCloughan bought Bearskin Lodge on the Gunflint Trail near Grand Marais, MN -- and all Sue's worries changed. If she seems somewhat incoherent while writing this blog, it's because her already overly taxed mind has been preccupied learning about potato salad, pea gravel, turbidity, crawl spaces, off-peak heaters, lake structure and antiquated front desk cash registers.
